"The world of Keeper is intricate, with a storied past and magical dynamics beyond just witches and non magical folk."--Foreword Magazine
"Chance delivers an enjoyable beginning to her new series."--Kirkus Reviews
Magic always leaves a mark . . .
When the ghost of a 200-year-old witch attacks her on the road, sixteen-year-old bookworm Lainey Styles is determined to find a logical explanation. But even with the impossible staring her in the face, Lainey refuses to buy in to all that “hocus pocus nonsense”—until she finds a photograph linking the witch to her dead mother.
After the library archives and even Google come up empty, Lainey gives in and consults a psychic. There she discovers that, like her mother, she’s a Keeper: a witch with the exclusive ability to unlock and wield the Grimoire, a dangerous spell book. But the Grimoire is missing, stolen years ago by a malevolent warlock who is desperate for a spell locked inside it—a spell that would allow him to siphon away the world's magic.
With the help of her comic-book-loving, adventure-hungry best friend and an enigmatic but admittedly handsome street fighter, Lainey must leave behind her life of books and studying to prepare for the biggest test of all: stealing back the book.
"Chance has upped her game with this solid sequel. A fun, high-stakes, often surprising thrill ride." --Kirkus Reviews

Seek and you will find . . .
Lainey’s normal, bookworm life no longer exists. With her family murdered by the Master, she joins forces with a group of Supernatural rebels. But as she struggles to cope with her new role as Keeper and the uncontrollable power it gives her, Lainey realizes that magic does indeed leave a mark—but it’s not always physical.
Ty isn’t one of the good guys. He’s done terrible things, and he won’t stop until he gets what he wants. Even if it hurts. Even if it means betraying the girl he loves…again.
For Maggie, all her comic book dreams have come true, and her new life as a Shifter is just beginning. But with war closing in, is it truly a dream or a death sentence?
In the ultimate battle for power, Lainey, Ty, and Maggie must face-off against the Master, and work together to discover the greatest weapon of all.

"Into the Depths" by Kim Chance
I’m breathless when I push through the final set of doors. The blue light from the massive tank at the back of the room glows, beckoning me.
Every cell in my body ignites as I hurry forward, my eyes searching the murky water.
She emerges from the shadows and presses her delicate palm against the glass. Her chestnut brown hair floats around her head like a crown, which only makes the vise around my heart tighten.
I place my own palm on the glass, imagining the soft feel of her slender fingers against my own. “Marina.” Her name spills from my lips as I press my forehead against the thick pane that separates us.
She mirrors my movement, her own forehead resting opposite mine through the glass. It’s as close as we’ve ever been able to get to one another...
